hmm

i dont like how the enemies just stop coming and then nothing.
not even: you saved the galaxy!

It's a good rough draft

As of now, it is a basic asteroids-style game.

Here is what i suggest you fix.
1. Enemies cannot spawn on you or within a specific area of you, that way the game is based arround skill rather then luck. It will fit the genre more this way.
2. Make the boundries of the visible area either enclosed or continue to an oposite side for movement. If you do this, make sure that you set a maximum distance that the bullets can travel or make it so they cannot shoot through walls.
3. Explain the formula to the points.

Some things that you should add (most are very obvious):
1. Vary the enemies
2. "Level"-based Upgrades (like a point system)
3. In-game Power-ups
4. Maybe add something to the backround, like stars or whatnot, a black screen is kind of bland.

I am currently in the library and do not have headphones, so I was not able to hear sound, but nice upbeat music and varied sound effects are always a nice addition.

Overall, it is a good start.

THANK YOU FOR THIS REVIEW IT HAS BEEN VERY HELPFULL

I have been working on this for most of the day.. on and off and have made alot of improvments to it.. not all of your improvments have been included in this upgrade but there is more to come.. i hope lol

thanx again a good review like this is what i was looking for.

it was ok

it was ok, music would be good as well as sound
Also when my shield (blue bar) and health (red bar) went to 0 i didn't die if i got hit again. It was ok, just got boring quickly

Good game

One problem though, sometimes enemies spawned right next to me and I had no time to get out of the way or shoot them or anything. Also, I had no idea what the bars on the bottom-right did. I guessed that the bar in the middle was my health, but when that went empty I didn't die. Unless it's your shield, maybe?

I think you should get power-ups, i.e. faster rate of fire, faster movement speed, more powerful bullets etc. Also, maybe the enemies should gat progressively harder as you go along. Other than that, you really only need to fix the enemy spawning bug.

nice but still a little rough

this could be a very good game. things to work on. a start up menu one. next the apperence of enimies are sometimes eather right on you or to close to do anything. i would make things upgradable and enemies get harder as you go. other then that i really think that you have a very good start to a game. with some improvments you can possibly make the front page.
